This camp will be located at the BVRA Gymnastics facility, but will also spend one day at the Milton Rock Gym.
  • Let's Hear It For The Boys!- Recreational or competitive gymnastics give boys a chance to develop amazing upper body strength and agility that apply to any future sporting interests.  On June 9th, BVRA Gymnastics will be hosting an event for all boys (ages 6-18) in the community to try out what a few hours of gymnastics training would be like!  We will be inviting guest coach Eric Sobel to coach at this event.
  • Diving Lessons: The Lewisburg Community Pool will host Diving Lessons with Susquehanna University diving coach Josh Powell. Learn the fundamentals of diving in a safe and fun fashion. Lessons are for all ages and skill levels. There will be an Intro to Diving clinic for $10 on July 6th at 11am for children to try out the class! Weekly classes will be specific to Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced divers, for more individualized attention.
  • Bus Trip to NYC- With so much to do and see, why not take a bus trip?! Let BVRA worry about navigating, driving in traffic, finding parking, and take a trip with us to New York City on Sunday, June 30th, 2019. Reserve your space on the bus by visiting our website www.bvrec.org.  
  • Parent’s Night Out- Need a night out?  Drop your child(ren) off at the warming house and we guarantee your kid(s) will have an amazing time! The space offers open play of all types, and the kids never get bored.  Children ages 3-9 who are POTTY TRAINED may attend this program. Call the office to register at 570-524-4774.
